The Black Isle

The Black Isle is brilliant for cycling, with some superb on and off-road routes to be explored on two wheels.

Using a bike is cheap, gets you fit, and is a great way to beat the queues - particularly relevant when the Kessock Bridge is busy.

If the option of using an E-Bike interests you, loans are currently available via the Energy Saving Trust / Home energy Scotland to help with buying one.  See this link for more information:

Go ByCycle

Here is an update from Velocity Cafe's Go ByCycle Programme (Go ByCycle)

We just wanted to let you know Go ByCycle will be offering information and activities via our Facebook, Twitter, and website. We hope our online schedule will help people stay connected, healthy and active while social distancing.

Starting next week (Monday 20th April) we will post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with a different theme each week. We will share useful information and fun activities to help people get outside once a day or bring nature in! We will also share how members of our team and the wider community are keeping healthy and active.

We have attached our schedule for Week 1 which introduces active travel with a theme of eating and drinking healthily. We would be delighted if you could join us online and share with others.
